My name’s Bo Luellen,.  I’m an author and part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs.  This article outlines the profile of a personality that will be in my upcoming book, Mr. Ants Lipanovic.

Not Quite Finding Bigfoot

In 2012 I was hosting a paranormal podcast called The 188 Garrison.  I covered all manner of supernatural elements.  When Finding Bigfoot hit Animal Planet, it was a huge hit.  I booked Cliff Barackman onto the show.  In the weeks leading up to his appearance I began researching some of the shows latest episodes.  The Season 2  Australian Yowie installment had just aired.  I invited two Australians that were involved in the episodes production, Mr. Ants Lipanovic and Mr. Ray Doherty onto my show.  It was a great program, but after the show was over I got the real scoop.  The following is what happened during the filming of that episode in his own words.
 (Upper Left:  Ray Doherty, Upper Right:  Ants Liponavic, Bottom:  Finding Bigfoot Crew with Ants and Ray)

Behind the Scenes in the Outback

“The Finding Bigfoot show was coming to Brisbane.  To my delight I had an insider who was invited to the town hall meeting.  This was the gathering the show conducts during filming to get local reports of Sasquatch activity.  Unfortunately my friend wasn’t able to attend, but he offered to give me his spot. 

He said, “Go on.  Have a good time.  Let me know how it goes!”

Sasquatch had been a passion of mine since I was a kid.  At an early age I would watch and read anything I could get my hands on about the creature.  In my adulthood I took my interest to a new level.  I began looking for the Australian version, The Yowie. 

Naturally I jumped at the chance.  Being a good mate, I sneaked a few fellow Yowie hunters in with me.  You know, as all good Australians would do. So down to Brisbane we went.  

I took this rare opportunity seriously.  The Finding Bigfoot team were a bunch of heroes to me.  I was itching to get in and say hello to Bobo.  The chance to meet the most famous crew out in the field of that time period was electrifying.

When I arrived I was told the filming was running late.  It seemed it was taking the production crew longer than expected to get organized. While waiting we all managed to meet the cast.  It was a good time.  The Finding Bigfoot team had a few pictures with us, shared some stories and napped a few group pictures.  

The production team said everyone that had showed up for the Town Hall Meeting could have a refreshment or two on their tab.  Here is a teachable moment for any Yanks that come to visit.  You should never say something like this to an Aussie.

Three hours later we had a few more than one or two drinks.  Everyone had ordered Angus steak dinners, and kept drinking. During this set up period we had met some of the other folks who where there for the Town Hall Meeting.  There were dozens of Yowie witnesses, but I had heard of any of them.  After visiting with each of them, I find out two thirds of  them were actors! Well that’s it! Another drink please.  I was in shock.  The only thing I could do to calm my disappointment was to get me some dessert on Animal Planets tab.  

Finally it was time to start filming.  Jesus, sitting in the crowd watching all of this happen was a eye opener for sure.  I watched one guy nearly fall over from too much rum.  The only thing that kept him from falling asleep was the promise of another glass.  I’m a gentlemen enough to not name names, but you know who you are.

So now the crew was rolling film.  Scanning the room the Finding Bigfoot crew asked, “Who has had an experience?”  You know what?  All those actors put there hands up.  Then as usual “wooooooo” from the four main cast members with the star saying, “That’s a lot!”

I’m thinking bullshit ya wankers I know that most of them are fake.  Listening to these people give their accounts and knowing what was really going on was just disappointing. They used fake accounts instead of genuine witness testimony.    I was so disappointed.   We had even invited the Finding Bigfoot cast to come out to our site during their week of filming. I couldn’t’ back down now.  I feel like I’ve become a part of the hoax.

The night drew to a close with the mapping of peoples fake accounts in the can.  Then the day arrived when the Finding Bigfoot crew came to our investigation site. Mind you we are all set to do an over night experience, just like on the show.  We had no longer showed them around when we got shunted off.  They said it was because the catering truck was on its way to feed the crew.  So we left very disappointed and a little bewildered.  We had no idea what happened out thee after that. 

We might have been been used for our site, being a part of that set up Town Hall but I’m not not mad.  I just laugh it off.  You see rumor has it our tab at the bar was around $2500 dollars.  Match point Animal Planet.”

– Ants Lipanovic

Paranormal Odyssey

After that conversation we started a podcast together.  Ants and I worked on the Paranormal Odyssey podcast for over a year together.  We interviewed a multitude of high profile ghost hunters, UFO investigators and Bigfoot enthusiasts.  It was an honor.  He is a Brother to me.  A drunk, ugly and incredibly cool Brother.

 

Profile: The Tracker – Chad Scott

My name’s Bo Luellen,.  I’m an author and part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs.  This article outlines the profile of a personality that will be in my upcoming book, Mr. Chad Scott.

Halloween Party Gone Right

In 2008 I meet Chad at a Halloween party I was hosting for a large contingent of paranormal investigative team owners in the Tulsa area.  He had agreed to come because he was interested in joining my team and it was a good way to get to know him.

At the party we all took turns telling our best ghost stories from the last years hunts.  When it got around to Chad’s turn to tell a story he said, “I really don’t have any good ghost stories, but I have these.”

Chad pulled out a box from under his chair.  In it were six foot casts of a creature no one had seen before.  Most were over a foot long.  They looked humanoid but not.  We passed them around to sounds of gasps from everyone attending.

I asked, “How did you get these?”

He said, “I got them in Sulfur.  I have a bathtub full of them at the house.”

Chad did have a bathtub full of them.  He also had more physical evidence of the creature than I had ever seen.  Ever since then I have followed his exploits and made him a great friend.  With his help I went on several field investigations into Sulphur.

Bio of Chad Scott

Chad’s interest in the “unexplained” began around age 11-12 when he discovered a collection of Time Life books on unexplained mysteries along with a copy of the Amityville Horror. He had a Pentecostal preacher for a father, so he kept the books hidden.  When he moved back to Texas the next year his grandfather began teaching him how to track, wilderness observation, and survival skills.

After attending college, he spent most of my time in the woods reconnecting with the lessons his grandfather taught him. It was during this time that he had his first encounter with Bigfoot. He decided to put his passion for tracking and the outdoors to work in a partnership with his desire to get to the bottom of the Bigfoot mystery.
Since that time he has investigated Bigfoot in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, California, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  He also investigated  large cats, wolves and bears in areas they aren’t supposed to be in.

He has been tracking for over 30 years.  He has performed professional investigation work (private investigator, safety investigator, forensic interviewing and interrogation, and corporate loss prevention) for over 25 years.  Through it all he has been steadily investigating mysterious phenomena for over 20 years.

Paranormal Notes: Historic Camelot Hotel

My name’s Bo Luellen, and I’m part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs. 

About a week ago I released some of the photos’s from our Camelot Hotel investigation on a few social media outlets.  There was a great deal of interest in the case, if for nothing else, to see the pictures of our Oklahoma landmark.   Here is the full story with photo’s.

Case Name:  Camelot – Date:  August 13th, 2005

Case Reseach:

The Camelot Hotel has been a shining landmark for Oklahoma from 1965 to 2007 when it was demolished.  Here are some key elements of the hotel –

Credit:  The Tulsa World

  • It was build in October of 1965 and had 330 rooms.
  • President Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley were among the Camelot’s VIP guests.
  • The Republican governors’ conference was held there in 1968 and local high schools booked their proms at the hotel.
  • The hotel even made a cameo appearance in the 1982 Matt Dillon film, “Tex.”
  • Its design reflected Old England in the spirit of its name sake, Camelot.
  • The hotel drawbridge lowered and a doorman costumed as the Keeper of the Realm welcomed guests.
  • It cost 5 million to build.
  • In the courtyard, a replica of Excalibur, the sword which King Arthur withdrew from the stone in the fable, was embedded in a 700-pound boulder.
  • Every room had a phone, including the bathrooms.
  • Each of the four luxurious bi-level tower suites on the eighth floor featured a living room with a bar, poker table, color television and powder room on the lower level with the bedroom (with a black-and-white TV) and bathroom upstairs. Entrance to the suites, named Musk Ox, Mandril, Unicorn and Walrus, was through double doors with huge brass handles imported from Spain.
  • The public rooms were just as posh. In the swanky Red Lion Club, guests were served by “lionesses” decked out in gold lame pelts with red ostrich feather tails. The bar had thick plaid carpeting, stained-glass windows and red swivel chairs upholstered with black leather.
  • The lobby was a modern take on King Arthur’s Court, complete with a Round Table and a throne.
  • The crumbling castle was purchased by followers of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who renamed it Heaven on Earth Plaza Hotel with plans to transform it into a school. They offered to rid Tulsa of crime through Transcendental Meditation for $26 million a year. City officials declined.
  • Protesters from local churches marched near the Camelot when 13 contestants competed in the Miss Gay Oklahoma Pageant in the hotel’s Great Hall.
  • It was condemned in 1996.
  • QuikTrip Corp. purchased the 5.9-acre property and demolished the hotel in 2007. Five years later, the convenience store chain built a store on the site

 The below pictures are from searches on the web.

 Case Investigation File:

In early 2005, word came around that the Camelot’s future was not hopeful.  The building had a history of haunting’s.  Reports of spirits being seen on the top floors was always popular around the camp fire.  Nothing solid had ever been collected.  I decided that it was now or never to get an investigation going.

I phoned the realator for the building asking if I could do an investigation.  We were flat out refused.  This made sense.  They were trying to sell the building so the last thing they needed was to have a team putting paranormal evidence on the internet.

One week later I phoned the realtor back again, this time telling him I was an investor looking to possibly buy the property.  Now this was a lie, but not entirely.  If they were willing to sell the building for 20 bucks, I could handle that with a payment plan.  Incidentally the realtor did tell me they were looking for 4.1 million for the property.

On August 13th, 2005 we arrived at the property to meet the realtor and the security guard.  Our team was dressed in business casual to fit the part of investors.  After some waiting we discovered the realtor wasn’t going to be joining us and the security guard had a family emergency.  I was informed that the front gate was unlocked and we could come and go as we wished.

My team immediately changed into street clothes and entered the building.  Team Members:  Bo Luellen (team owner), Chris Rowe (team owner), Alicia Murphy, and Taj were present.  We entered as a group, but were unprepared for the level of vandalism we were about to see.

The 1st floor was coated with layers of broken glass.  Every window in the first floor had been shattered.  This made walking very dangerous.  The glass had a tendency to make you slip, and falling wasn’t something you wanted to do.  Gang graffiti and evidence of homeless living in the building was everywhere.

The further we went up the less vandalism there was.  Parts of the building were burned in what looked like isolated fires.  Doors were kicked open and rooms were used by those desperate enough use the hotel for shelter.

Hints at the grandeur of the place were all around.  Incredibly beautiful 70’s architecture shown through in areas.  The bar area looked like a 70’s disco palace if the Knights of Old needed a place to get down.  In the center of the dance floor were circle seating so if you got tired of dancing, you could take a break.  Just incredible.

When we reached the penthouses we found that looters had stolen most of the decorative items in the rooms.  We did find a bill for a guest that was slide under the door that dated to the 80s’.  It was like finding a time capsule.

When we reached the roof we took a picture of downtown Tulsa (pictured below).  Looking down you could easily see the magnificence of the shield shaped pool.  It was rumored that the builder of the hotel wanted miniature crocodiles to be placed in the pool, but found no way of keeping them alive.

On our second sweep of the first floor we found a box of fliers left behind by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.  In it he outlined his goals for Tulsa.  We collected a few of them for historical context.

In the end we did not get any evidence of a haunting.  EMF meters were normal.  No EVP’s were found in audio collected.  All photographic evidence showed only normal dust particles.

Unfortunately when my co-owner left, he destroyed years of evidence, including the video and audio of the Camelot investigation.   This is a shame because we captured the beautiful grandeur that still existed in areas of the hotel.  The below photos are the only ones I have left.  To my knowledge, we were the last paranormal team to enter the building.

Game Design – Part 1: The Muse

My name’s Bo Luellen, and I’m the co-author of the upcoming Pathfinder Setting source book:  The Keswick Player’s Handbook along with Johnny McLain.  We are the co founders of Pick Up the Fork Media LLC.

If you think figuring out what PC you want to play is hard, step into the Game Master’s chair.  The role of a GM is to present a balanced game which will challenge the players, give a intriguing story line and set up a beginning and an end.  I personally follow the Three Act Structure found in movie making.  I also try to incorporate Chekov’s Gun and a Deus Ex Machina to really enhance the danger element and the sense of high adventure.  I’ve provided links to these concepts, and I’ll going into details about how I integrate them into a gaming experience that leaves the players feeling like they are a part of The Game of Thrones instead of an episodic serial.

Refreshing the Well of Inspiration

I’ve been putting together regular games since 1996.  Finding new and interesting story lines is like nailing jello to the wall.  If you do not find new plot lines to follow, it turns into the Southpark episode where everything  they try has a “Simpson’s Did It!” reply.

When the mental well goes dry I pick up my backpack, find a park or a trail head, and I hike.  As I walk through the forest I try to imagine what it would be like for a character who had a week long journey in the woods to reach a town.  I let me mind wonder about the particulars of the journey.  Why are they traveling?  What quest were they answering?

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

As a writing and brain storming exercise lets follow the line of thought as I hiked today at the Turkey Mountain in Tulsa, Oklahoma:

As the heroes travel, I considered how they would eat and drink.  You can’t carry enough water and food.  You have to hunt for supplies.  This means you would need to hire a competent guide with game hunting experience.  What if that hunter wasn’t some pub crawler just waiting around for someone to hire them?  What if he was a logger who was recently laid off.  His family is depending on him/her for a livelihood.  Now lets say that logging company that fired him has also hired you to travel to this distant town to pick up some mercenaries that will scare some farmers off their wooded land.  This would give the evil logging corporation a foot hold on cheap land.  So now the PC’s are traveling with the laid off logger, hearing his sad story on the way to the town.  During the journey the ex-logger helps the PC’s fend off some random encounters, ingratiating himself to them.  By the time the PC’s arrive at the town, they are fulling on the loggers side, and must figure out how to turn the tables on the evil logging corporation!

All this from one walk in the woods.

Imagination isn’t sparked by the on switch of a gaming console.  It is ignited through new experiences, adversity and private mediation.  Try turning the radio off in the car as you go for a drive, walk around your block or sit on your back porch and watch some squirrels scurry around your neighborhood.  Modules are great to buy, and there are a lot of fantastic adventures ready for purchase.  Don’t forget that the adventures your group talks about the most are the ones that came from the mind of your Game Master!

Sensitives as an Investigation Tool – Part 2

Continued from:  Sensitives as an Investigation Tool – Part 1

While the concept of a Sensitive member of a team cherished point of debunking by skeptics, their value can change the tide of an investigation.   One role the Sensitive seems to play is the connection they can have with the client.

The Unexpected Councilor

In situations where emotions run high, the clients can become overwhelmed by the sharing of their experiences.  In past investigations I’ve found the clients seem to gravitate towards the Sensitive members of the team.  I believe this is because the client feels that their story is so incredible, they seem to be concerned with convincing the team that their recount is true.  They want someone to know they are not crazy, and the supernatural occurrences really happened.  To that end, they reach out to the team member who can validate their experiences by means of a sixth sense.  The Sensitive member becomes not only a tool for sensing activity, but a councilor to the client.  This too can be a benefit to the team, as they might get further information vital to the investigation that the client did not share initially.

The Occultist Librarian

During the Pope Lick Monster investigation case in Louisville, KY, our team came across some drawings on the side of the bridge.  These were a mixture of pagan symbolism and Celtic letters.  We documented the drawings for later research, but one of our team Sensitives amazed us all by translating it on the spot.  To give him credit, Mr. Chris Gravatte was the team member in question.  He is a Crowlian and an excellent field technician.

The background of the Sensitive is usually rooted in some occult or pagan practice.  This can be a great resource to a team when they come into contact with some mystery surrounding such an element.  In 1988 I was told a story by a librarian about going through her fathers affects after his death.  She found a chest full of candles, spell books and incense.  This was a big surprise to the woman, and she told the story like a tale of horror to scare children.  At the time I was heavily influenced by my families religion, Pentecostal, so this story frightened me to death.  It wasn’t until I started investigating and researching the occult that the particulars of the librarians story made sense.

To have a qualified expert in occult practices and pagan religions on hand cannot be underestimated or undervalued.

Giant Mecha’s in Pathfinder Gaming

My name’s Bo Luellen, and I’m the co-author of The Keswick Player’s Handbook along with Johnny McLain.  The KPH brings to life a gaming world I started creating back in 1996.  Among the many pop culture references I draw from, the concept of the giant monsters from the Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra and Gamera film franchises is one of my most beloved.  As a kid I combed through the old TV Guides to see if there was going to be a Godzilla movie playing on one of the five stations we had.  For you kids that are reading this, let me repeat; we had only five tv stations to watch.  This might be shocking to you, but life was just as exciting without a smart phone.

From Film to Function

As I began the process of writing the KPH, I started looking at just how one would work a godlike monster that dwarfed the Tarrasque into a OGC Pathfinder supplement.  The power of a Kaiju (giant Japanese monster) could lay waste to any city, and literally become a world breaker.  To make these beasts work within the rules while preserving an element of fun was a challenge.  How could I make a giant Mecha work in the mechanics of a game without driving the players and the GM nuts?  The answer was, “The 1 to 100 rule.

Mogera from the 1994 movie Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla

The 1 to 100 Rule

In the concept stages of game design, our team had to come up with a way for a player and a GM to have a rules system for combat and movement.  We shifted from a super complicated system down to a simple one.  In the simplest terms here is the mechanic that Johnny and I came up with:

  • The 1 to 100 rule says that 1 point of damage from a Kaiju or Mecha will do 100 points of damage to a non-kaiju/mecha creature, and it takes 100 points of damage from a non-kaiju/mecha creature to do one point of damage to a Kaiju or Mecha.  The Kaiju or Mecha have this same rule placed on several aspects of their build.  This makes a single step by the behemoths deadly to anything under foot.

This rule allows a sense of awe for these amazing monsters, while allowing room for a d20 combat system.  This mechanic is much more in depth than this, but this is the essential concept.

How is A Mecha Possible in the Arthurian Keswick Setting?

The setting of Keswick began being designed in 2003 when I ran a two year long game in Tulsa Oklahoma.  During that time I introduced an ancient race of Keswickians who’s technology had been forgotten by time.  In subsequent adventures, the players uncovered underground ruins that had left over technology that they were utilize.  As the game went on, by 2015 the players helped me flesh out a complete catacomb of an ancient city that housed the fabled Marcavis, the first Mecha I created, which was used to defend the nation against a Kaiju.  To quote Pacific Rim, the players had found some truth in these words:
Stacker Pentecost: Today. Today… At the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. Today we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them! Today, we are *canceling* the apocalypse!”  

There are several ways for Players to pilot a Mecha.  By visiting the city of Zanfan, the home of the Mecha excavation and R&D, the PC’s get to see the wonder of the ancient world.  Mecha’s as small as a horse or the 200 foot tall ancient wonders are on display.  If you have the right training, you could pilot one of these and defend The Relam from one of the 13 Kaiju that inhabit the land.

Keswick Player’s Handbook – Introduction

king_by_skaya3000-d96fxyz

(King by Skaya)

Written by Bo Luellen and Johnny McLain

The new Pathfinder system supplement by Pick Up the Fork Media LLC. is due to be released in November.

What is Keswick?

The Nation of Keswick is a shinning beacon of bravery and chivalry to the rest of Arreanna.  It is based on the Arthurian legends with a twist of pop culture.  The war torn landscape shows the scars of cataclysms and disasters that nearly wiped out civilization from the face of the planet on several occasions.  Now the small number of civilized races struggle to survive in sporadic settlements scattered through the land.  Out numbered by the vicious races of The Wild almost 2 to 1, The Crown of Keswick is determined to defend The Realm.

What does this book bring to my gaming table?

New game mechanics such as:

  • Cache Renown’s:  Organizations that give players an career path and an edge when starting their adventuring career.
  • Mecha’s and Kaiju (Godzilla sized monsters):  Defend the Realm from 200+ foot tall monsters in equally massive mechanized robots made from forgotten and ancient Arreanna technology.
  • Well Crafted History:  The designers have been writing Arreanna since 1996, which results in one of the most well organized and thought out histories to any campaign setting.
  • Mini-Races:  Certain races of marsupials were awakened during the Age of the Purge.  Play as cute 6 inch Murine (mouse), Dragon Shrews or Flying Chipmunks in adventures from a smaller perspective.
  • New Combat Rules:  Mechanics developed for Mini-Races as well as Kaiju sized encounters that makes sense.
  • Brand New Classes, Races, Feats, Traits and Pantheon:  Keswick has options that allows for them to play anything from a bold Knight from one of the 13 Orders or a thief looking to rob a tomb.  High adventure is the order of the day!
  • Much more…
